If you are having trouble getting a GPS satellite fix on your HX-1, make sure you trying to detect satellites while outside, clear of near by obstructions and with a clear view of the sky.

The Satellite detection and download of GPS ephemeris and almanac data can take up to 20 minutes, allowing the device to obtain a precise GPS fix on your location.

If this has not completed properly, you can reset the GPS and try again, here's how:

To perform a GPS reset, first click the Hema button on the main launch screen, as shown at 1 below.

This will open the Floating Nav screen. Tap the satellite indicator on this screen as shown at 2 below.
